    meaning of a dialogue

    Hi!

    Can you please help me with this dialogue from a movie. I don't understand the part about man's job. :-/ What does he do? And what is he talking about? Thanks a lot!

    Woman:
    What kind of business are you in?

    Man:
    CAPS. Screw on, pop up, hinged - you name it. We do that new honey Dijon. The squeeze top one.

    Woman:
    Really? I'm going to have to try that one.

    The man either makes or sells caps i.e. covers/lids for many different things......."screw on" for soft drinks bottles, "pop up" for water bottles, "hinged" for toothpaste and so on.

    Can't help with "squeeze top" though, unless it's the sort used on tomato ketchup (where you squeeze the bottle!) I can imagine such a cap being used on a plastic bottle/jar of honey.
